, the president assassinated, bobby kennedy assassinated, the president's son killed in a senseless plane crash off cape cod, jacqueline kennedy died in her early 60s of cancer, ted kennedy, the whore at chappaquiddick where that young woman died in that accident. they identify also with the suffering that the family has gone through, because everybody lives to something a difficult in their lives. so it's the combination on the one hand of their fame and fortune, and on the other hand their suffering, their tragedy. but they are really the dynastic family. >> that will explain the public fascination but in this book he tells the truth and we've had a range of kennedy biographies. then there was the tearing them down at exposure of his womanizing and the concealment of his health problems, but i left his platoon this was a pretty positive portrait. he was my take away come to paint the picture of a president came in with a lot of faith and going to defer to his disasters, but he learned from that expense and by the time of the cuban missile crisis he realized he was also responsible for the dec
think it's the first reference that i saw in here at least he writes about bobby, and he later wrote the great book about bobby after his death. but he said to the editor of the new york times in ten of 1954, robert kennedy's letter is such an astonishing mixture of distortion and error that it deserves comment. [laughter] and the times for arguing that the trouble lay not with yalta, but with the subsequent violations. mr. kennedy suggested the agreement gave manchuria to soviet russia. china shall retain full sovereignty in manchuria. not that many years later he writes the most persuasive letter to "the new york times" about why bobby kennedy will be a good senator from the state of new york and why he deserves to run. so's not inflexible in terms of making judgments about things. but for me at least, watching that mind at work and watching him on the american landscape and not just going with the winds, but making strong judgments, this was an area that he knew well and probably did know a lot more than bobby did about what happened at yalta and was not afraid to pull his chain.
it is the first or reference to write about bobby after his death the editor of "the new york times" kennedy's letter was published february 3rd to deserved comments but not only with the agreements with the violation about why bobby kennedy was a good senator and why he was but always to make judgment. but to watch the landscape but this was the area us you know, well and probably more it was not afraid to pull his change. >> that brings up the point it it became very close to him and i used to visit my father at law school and we would go out to dinner and he and bobby would sit there and talks about the existential issues suffering so dramatically from the assassination of jack kennedy to talk about issues of do you believe in god. i remember vividly i remember to me that opened with my father not on the policy level but on a personal level. >> something to touch on he was also right tea film reviews. and it just does drop to have him give me a chapter and verse about the structure he was the forest, but not the bad way the spending the us numbers at the cape but had told in the winterti

, the u.s. government was silent. in 1966, bobby kennedy went to south africa and took a stand against racism. giving the greatest speech he ever delivered. >> each time a man stands up for an ideal, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. >> reporter: from lbj to nixon to jimmy carter, south africa's apartheid government was actually a u.s. ally in the cold war. as the anti-apartheid movement grew, a young college student named barack obama was inspired by mandela to give his first political speech. the man in the white house then said no to sanctions. against south africa, insisting they wouldn't work. congress defied ronald reagan and imposed them any way. reagan took his own stand against apartheid by appointing the first black man as ambassador to africa. four years later, mandela was free. his first visit to america. warmly welcomed at the white house. >> mr. mandela, a man who embodies the hopes of millions. >> reporter: it was bill clinton with whom he would develop the closest bond. mandela, now president of south africa, visited the white house during the darkest days of the cl
at john kasich and bobby jindal and there's a lot of interesting governors out there. and they don't necessarily our in love with them, but chris christie deserves a lot of credit and he took on this and he has changed a lot about this in a way that is very impressive and i think that you have to start from there. when i work with specific people, there are a lot of different folks and i have talked with rob portman who knows about the irs. he's a manufacturer who is elected to the senate in wisconsin and that's a good example and mike burgess was a medical doctor in carrying this around and he has a smart phone. but his smart phone has an application that does cardiology. you can really put it up when he gets us with his smart phone and he gets where we are going. and tim griffin is a great congressman from arkansas and he knows the general direction we are going. and there's enough to be hopeful about. >> mr. speaker. we are taking questions from youtube and we have been online all week so we have some that people have e-mailed to us and we will start right now the first one. sin
